Welcome to Rugby 1st.

Rugby 1st Limited (R1) is a not-for-profit business network and Rugby community-based organisation.

We work with and unite executives, businesses, brands and Clubs – and support grassroots and community Rugby, Veterans, medical research, charitable organisations and inclusion in sport. We achieve this via our network, social connectivity and offering core management skills on a pro bono basis – while creating, supporting and implementing new programs with impact and via membership fee and sponsorship redistribution of profits.

Our significant network and reach, can be utilised to tap into new and relevant opportunities to support, expand and create awareness for businesses and brands, and the charities, Clubs and organisations that need support.

We develop and implement creatively strategic ideas to engage you, your business and worthwhile organisations
– we make a difference to under-resourced Rugby causes and can make a difference to you and your business.
